Magnavox 42mf230a/37 turns on but no picture or sound?

    What board is it? Im an electrician with all the tools and supplies needed to get this fixed. In my opinion its the power supply. It turns on but I get no picture or sound. Ive had the tv for almost 4 years now and its been perfect up until we had a bad storm last week. Now It turns on, I get the blue light, and I can hear the screen fire up but no picture or sound. So if you could please go into more detail it would really be helpful. Thanks for the help either way.

I have over 10 years experience in electronic tech support.

I know this isn't what you want to hear, but the problem you've described can't be fixed with troubleshooting. Your TV will have to be repaired. There is a part that has developed a defect and needs to be replaced. If you're under warranty or you purchased an extended warranty or service plan, the repair costs will be covered.

If you're not in warranty you'll have to pay for the repair. The cost would likely be a minimum of $300+ for parts and labor. The circuit boards in these new LCDs are not cheap at all! I've seen repair costs averaging $450 and up for large LCD TVs.

I hope I've provided you useful assistance and that this information allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here. I hope I've earned a positive rating from you today.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

My magnavox model# 42mf230a/37 tv turns on I get good sound and picture but it has a 4inc black line onleft side edge of screen


Black lines on Plasma TV are cause by either the buffer boards or the logic board. OR your screen is bad. the only way to find out is the replace the boards. I would start with the Buffer boards. The buffer boards are located on the bottom of the screen attached by ribbon cables to the screen. look at the bar and replace the board that lines up with it. You can find parts fro this TV at www.interliquidparts.com You have to get the actual part number from the part on your TV to get the correct one.

Magnavox/samsung 42MF230A/37 plasma t.v. turns on, no picture.


the only way to check it is to change out boards. the "sugar cubes" are ceramic resistors and should get hot. if you have the correct voltages on the p/s then you will need to replace both the y and z boards. better off buying a new tv. consider letting a professional tech. check it for you, this is not something to be tried unless you know what you are doing. if you really want to do it yourself get the service manual and a voltmeter.

42' plasma magnavox model # 42MF230A has no picture and no sound


I had the same problem with an Insignia 42" 1080p. Turn off the tv power and disconnect all cables (i started with power cable, then HD cables then HDMI). Wait 30 seconds with nothing plugged in, then I plugged everything back in (in reverse order) and it works fine.

One of the driver IC'S has gone bad. Need to replace just the driver IC or the board that the IC is on and that should solve your problem. If that doesn't do it, then the BAD NEWS IS THAT THE PANEL IS BAD. Replacement is you only option then. Good luck. GURU JAY.
